Long ride to Ribblehead - Sunday 11th October 2015

Seven riders left Higherford under dull skies to climb over Blacko and the fast descent to Gisburn. Collecting another rider there we then made good progress through the lanes to Wigglesworth and the fast road across Settle Flats. The cafe at Horton in Ribblesdale provided a welcome coffee stop and split the climb to Ribblehead. Descending towards Ingleton there were fine views of Ingleborough before we diverted off the main road to a delightful lane - newly tarmaced - via Chapel le Dale into Ingleton for lunch.

The skies brightened somewhat after lunch but the shock of climbing up the steep lane from Ingleton to Clapham surprised a few. The route home was via Austwick, Lawkland, Rathmell, Paythorne and Barnoldswick. 67 miles in all - club personal bests for Dorothy Altham, Peter Bradford and Mark Clegg.
